Tomorrow, April 15th, will be the closing day for Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain and Snowmass. Unfortunately, due to an unseasonably warm and dry spring, Highlands Mountain was forced to close a week earlier than scheduled. Both Snowmass and Aspen were originally scheduled to close this weekend.

Today, Snowmass hosted its 5th annual Schneetag event, where teams of four build a float and then race them across a 40 x 100 foot pond. Additionally, each team is required to have a theme and perform a skit. Although this contest seems a bit ridiculous, the prizes are not. The prizes included a trip to ESPN Summer X Games in Los Angeles and tickets to a Colorado Rockies game. Congratulations to this year’s winner!

Traditionally, Highlands closing day is the party of the season in Aspen. Neon one pieces, Benny the Blade, DJ’s and a raging party scene celebrate the last turns of the ski season for Aspenites and their guests. Although, not a particularly memorable season in Aspen, locals are watching the snow fall currently and hoping for one last day of great skiing at Highlands Bowl.
